Tao Te Ching Chapter 51-8 Character

Today's Tao

Tao gives birth to this, raises this, leads this, takes care of this, gives this a shape, gives this a character, feeds this, and covers this. (Ch.51)

In this context, "this" means your own self and the hologram.

So, Today's Tao sentence is paraphrased as:

"Tao gives birth to your own self and the hologram.

Tao raises your own self and the hologram.

(This is your life.)

Tao leads your own self and the hologram.

(So, don't worry.)

Tao takes care of your own self and the hologram(, which is the world).

Tao gives your own self and the world a shape.

(True You are not your own self.)

And Tao gives you a character.

(So, you are not responsible for who you are.)"

Naoto Matsumoto adds:

Tao feeds its energy to the hologram.

Tao covers the hologram.

☞«The Woman in the Dunes» was originally written by Kobo Abe as a novel. Since the story has a very theatrical setting, it is not surprising that he adapted it into a screenplay. Hiroshi Teshigawara directed the film. This is one of the most successful avant-garde novels written in Japanese.
